What I'm learning



I've been reading a devotional lately that that been teaching me a lot about the character of Jesus.

It takes a passage of Scripture each day and guides you through reading the passage (usually more than once), journaling about it, meditating on it while you pray, and sometimes even picturing yourself in the story to get a new perspective on it.

Part of yesterday's passage was:
"A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, 'Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.'

Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. 'I am willing,' he said. 'Be clean!'"
(Matthew 8:1-3)

Jesus' character is willing to help me when I ask him. Jesus' character is loving and giving.

In my life right now, I am asking God for peace because I feel like there are so many unknowns coming up in the near future. I am asking to be closer to Him. I'm asking Him to be the solid, safe place that I can go to when everything else is up in the air, stressful, or unknown. This passage reminds me that he is willing help me when I ask Him.
